OK, here are some images of the diorama after it had been painted. I knew that I needed some contrast in colors, so I chose the Dark Green marble which would contrast nicely with the bronze goddess herself!
It can be a bit of a challenge to vary the "grain" of the marble, which can show individual pieces or slabs of marble very clearly.
My next post will have close up pictures of the goddess and of the miniature. Stay tuned!!
